NUREG-0654 / FEMA-REP-1 Revision 2 December 2019
NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1, “Criteria for Preparation and Evaluation of Radiological Emergency Response Plans and Preparedness in Support of Nuclear Power Plants,” is a joint United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) NUREG-series publication and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) guidance document. Both agencies use the document to evaluate the adequacy of the emergency plans and preparedness of state, local and tribal governments within the emergency planning zones (EPZs) surrounding commercial nuclear power plants (NPPs), as well as those of the commercial NPP applicants and licensees.
This NUREG-0654/FEMA-REP-1, Revision 2 update reflects changes to both NRC and FEMA regulations, guidance, policies and doctrine, as well as advances in technology and best practices that have occurred since the document was originally issued in November 1980. This update also incorporates the four supplemental documents and addenda that have been issued in the intervening years, and is intended to modernize and consolidate the guidance making it easier for users to understand.
